#LongReads — Expose Yourself To A Bit Of Social Media Controversy

This week, we are devoting our Long Reads section to social media controversy.

It’s not that we are huge fans of controversy for the sake of controversy — au contraire* — but we perceive controversy as a way of thinking, and developing opinions, about specific issues.

With this in prospect, here are three articles we found particularly relevant:

  • Seth Ferranti on Vice explaining why prisons should let inmates use social media.
  • Oliver Staley on Quartz depicting Twitter as a cultural success but a business failure.
  • Cliff Watson on Medium standing by the fact that teens aren’t abandoning social media.

*We prefer spreading love with cute kitten pictures like this one:
